Like many 3-year-old kids, Keelan Harvick doesn’t like to see his dad leave home.

That was especially true this week, when dad Kevin had to head out for this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event in Phoenix.

How bad did young Keelan want the 2014 Sprint Cup Series champion to stay home in North Carolina?

Bad enough to suggest a certain replacement driver — who happens to be a really good one — to his mom, DeLana.
